COLUMBIA, S.C. (7/9/09)--The National Youth Involvement Board reminds credit unions that the deadline for reporting classroom financial education presentation data is Friday. NYIB will recognize top presenters and states at its annual conference Aug. 3-6 in Tempe, Ariz. The NYIB website will accept continual presentation data entry, but the official reporting year is July 1, 2008, to June 30, 2009. Reported data indicate that credit unions reached 300,000 students in classrooms for the second consecutive year. Youth advocates reported 11,245 presentations reaching 374,099 students in the 2007-2008 school year, NYIB said. “Based on classroom data, this year’s challenges have not dampened credit unions’ engagement with young people,” said NYIB Chairman Brandon Pugh, who is also director of communications and public relations at the South Carolina Credit Union League. NYIB’s website allows users to set up profiles, retrieve data, and enter schools or organizations for presentation entry. Collected data is valuable to credit unions, their associations and regulators, and legislators, NYIB said. For more information, use the link.
